Where can I find someone to draft a Power of Attorney?

Where Can I Find Someone to Draft a Power of Attorney for Me?

The appropriate person to draft a Limited Power of Attorney or a Durable Power of Attorney is– an attorney! The best way to find an attorney is to ask someone you know who has been in a situation like yours and can recommend an attorney in your area. Another possible way to find an attorney is to look on the Internet. Websites such as USA.gov can help you find a reputable attorney http://www.usa.gov/topics/consumer/complaint/legal/find-attorney.shtml . Be sure you use a website where you can read reviews of the attorney from people who hired that attorney to draft a Power of Attorney or deal with similar issues you are facing. Also, you should call that attorney’s firm and see if they are pleasant and helpful, and will give you a free initial consultation on the phone. Use your instinct! If the law firm does not call you back or does not seem interested in your case– do not use that law firm. Google “Find an attorney in ________” and add your city and state. Then, search by the type of practice they do; usually attorneys who do Wills and Estate Planning will be the ones to call. In my experience, it is best to check several websites and call a number of attorneys. This project may take you several days, but it is the best way to find an attorney to draft a Power of Attorney. It is the same as choosing a notary: the ones with great reviews who answer the phone or call you back are the BEST!

  1. If you are on a very limited budget, it’s often possible to obtain the services of an attorney at no cost. Check with the office of your local political representative. They often have attorneys entering the political world who will do basic work at no charge. A call to your assembly person or congressional representative is a good start. They tend to be young, what they may lack in experience; is often made up by their availability. Be sure to ask if they are, in fact, an Attorney; or just a law student. Call first, to make an appointment.
